Only WDWorld was there to check it out. The 16th rendition of this much anticipated Disney World Special Event did not disappoint. There are many sights, sounds, and certainly tastes to enjoy at the F&W Festival and it starts the moment that you walk through the entrance to Epcot.
Epcot Food & Wine Festival Sights
As soon as you enter Epcot you get your first view of the Food & Wine Festival. The theme this year is Passport To A World Of Flavor and it is reflected in the travel oriented display you find at the entrance framed by the iconic Spaceship Earth for the pictures.
Epcot Food & Wine Festival Sounds
Once again this year the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival features a FREE concert series called "Eat To The Beat." Each night there are 3 approximately half hour concerts that take place in the America Gardens Theatre in the World Showcase.
For 2011 Taylor Dayne kicked off the series by performing the first 3 nights of the Festival. The outdoor theatre is small enough that everyone gets a great view of the musical acts that are performing. Taylor sounded great and put on a crowd pleasing show including old favorites that the crowd recognized along with a couple of new songs.
